HFBoard's Top 20 All-Time Devils Players (#1)

To kill a little boredom and bring some much needed conversation into HFBoard's I've decided to do start a poll of the collective opinion from all HFBoard users.

We are going to start off with a basic group of Stevens, Brodeur, Daneyko, Niedermayer, Elias, and MacLean, and narrow it down from there.

In each reply say who you voted for an also who you recommend to be in the next poll. The person (or persons if there is a tie) who recieves the most recommendations, will make the next list. I'm hoping I can manage to do this daily as well.

Some points I'd like to make.

1. We are judging only on what the player did while playing for the organization (i.e. Bill Guerin might've been great elsewhere, but he only had a brief time on the Devils).

2. We are judging for what they did while with the Devils, as in keep hatred of Niedermayer, Gomez, and Parise leaving aside.

3. It's not going to be about who your favorite player is, it's about who contributed the most to the organization in a player role.

4. Lastly, try to think of the players for their overall impact, and not in the diminished roles they were used later in their careers (White, Pandolfo).

Niedermayer is one of the best Devils of all time.

I almost voted for Stevens but ended up not. You can easily make an argument that he's #1 but Marty is well... Marty

The answer has to be Marty, though.
They're both HOFers, both were the best players on the ice for this team.

But Marty is in the conversation for "best of all time", Stevens isn't.
And Marty did it all right here in Jersey.

I agree but I just thought that some people would see more value in what Stevens brought. I could see both sides of that argument to be honest.

And Gomez will, or at least he should come close to cracking the top 10.

What Stevens brought is invaluable, no doubt about that.
It's hard to not put a guy like Stevens #1, unless you have a guy like Marty on the same team as well

It's more like 1A, 1B
To me, at least

I don't see Gomez in the top 10. Somewhere in the 15 range probably.

Marty is the best Devil of all time. No question about it.

Nominate Bobby Holik.

If you're looking at the impact the player had on the team, I have to go with Scott Stevens first.

Marty. No doubt about it. Stevens is second.

Add Madden or Sarge.
